Irish Potato Bread
If you canโ€™t get enough of Irish baking try your hand at Kevinโ€™s classic potato bread recipe. Itโ€™s a great way to use up leftover mashed potato and can even be turned into burger buns. Kevin Dundonโ€™s recipes are designed to be easily adaptable and are a great way to explore deeper into the cuisine.
Ballyminane Mill
Dating back to at least 1832, the Ballyminane mill is Irelandโ€™s last fully water powered flour and saw mill. For three generations, the Murphy family have operated the Wexford water mill, passing down the skills and the heritage of this rare institution. Click below to find out more!
